Witching Hour FragranceWitching Hour Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

The “witching hour” commonly refers to the time of night when witches and other supernatural beings are believed to be at their most powerful. In medieval times, it was believed that any woman out after midnight without a ‘legitimate reason’ to be out could have been suspected of witchcraft. In more modern times, the witching hour refers to the last hour of stock trading between 3pm and 4pm which sees a high amount of activity. Not as exciting as magic and ghosts and ghouls. Witching Hour Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden is perfect for your fall bath and body recipes

What Does Witching Hour Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A fun Halloween fragrance composed of spicy, magical notes:  this accord begins with freshly ground cinnamon bark, and complemented with herbal notes of bergamot, cannabis flower, jasmine, and rose;  and sits on earthy base notes of sheer musk, black tea, and patchouli.

Candles! This spooky scent performs perfectly in Joy wax and WOW wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fun fall fragrance in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%.

Never color your bath and body products with candle dye or they will end up coloring you! Now is the time where I’d normally recommend using natural soap colorant but, unfortunately, natural purple soap colorants are hard to find. You could try using activated charcoal powder to dye your soap black (or gray depending on how much you use). Activated charcoal is also a detoxifying agent and a natural odor absorber!

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fall fragrance in cleaning products is 1%.

Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti FragrancePumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil Spotlight

With all the different ways to make delicious pumpkin desserts, you’ve got to have a scent to represent each amazing flavor combination. Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti would go great with a cup of coffee, filling you up and warming you up this fall. In English, the Italian word “biscotti” means “twice-cooked.” The twice-cooked dryness of these cookies makes them last longer, and the products you make using this fragrance are certain to last even longer than the actual cookies because you can’t eat them! (Never eat fragrance oil- no matter how delicious it smells.)

What Does Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of freshly baked Italian biscotti with delicious notes of pumpkin and fresh walnuts.

Top Notes:  almond, cherry
Mid Notes:  pumpkin
Base Notes: biscotti cookie, walnuts, vanilla

Candles! This freshly baked fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this delicious dessert scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. It is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring suggestion for candles is to use 6 drops orange plus 1 drop brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred an ample amount of orange and brown color block into your melted wax. Never use crayons to color your candles; it will clog the wick!

Room scents! This autumn aroma comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and its maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%. (Try a reed stick diffuser kit for easy room scenting!)

Soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this bakery scent in bath oils, bath gels, and soap is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this sweet, nutty scent had a perfect pour in CP soapmaking: no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. Cured bars retained a strong scent and discolored to a chocolate color. This discoloration is likely due to the 7% vanillin content of the fragrance. The presence of vanilla tends to discolor bath and body products to varying shades of brown. The higher the vanillin content, the darker the discoloration. You can combat discoloration due to vanilla with our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer– but remember that you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use orange and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never color bath and body products with candle dye or they will end up coloring you! You can, however, try natural soap colorants– just be sure to pay close attention to the descriptions on their corresponding pages as different natural colors will be affected differently by different soap making processes.

Body products (outside of the bath)! This pumpkin scent performed perfectly in perfumes and its maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body spray is 5%.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this mouth-watering aroma in cleaning products is 5%.

Bundle up and load up a wagon full of soft hay, pile everyone in and go for a ride through the countryside!

The Metroparks offer hayrides and a corn maze for the kids at the Carlisle Equestrian Center here in Ohio  during weekends in October (only $1 for tickets).

Pumpkin Roll FragrancePumpkin Roll Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Pumpkin Roll is an amazing dessert generally reserved for Fall time. The whole season is a big ol’ pumpkin party. This delicious treat is made using pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, and sugar, then covered in a mix of cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar before being rolled into the shape that gives it its name. The Pumpkin Roll is also the name of an annual class prank played by seniors of Chagrin Falls High School (Ohio) in which they dump pumpkins down Grove Hill (the steepest part of Main Street) and it has evolved to include students sledding down the hill after their pumpkins. This has been an annual tradition since 1969. I personally prefer delicious pumpkin dessert to potentially dangerous pumpkin-related high jinks.

What Does Pumpkin Roll Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Comfort food at its best: sweet sugar pumpkin puree spiced with hints of cinnamon, and nutmeg layered onto a warm, sweet-butter crust, drizzled with maple and honey. Yummy!

Top Notes: Sugar Pumpkin, Orange, Sweet Butter
Mid Notes: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Maple
Base Notes: Vanilla

To combat discoloration due to vanilla, try Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Remember, you are responsible for the results in your finished products.

Bermuda Triangle FragranceBermuda Triangle Fragrance Oil Spotlight

The Bermuda Triangle is the nickname given to the area of the Atlantic Ocean between Miami, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda. It is most famous for legends of ships and planes suddenly vanishing in the area under mysterious circumstances. Sailors have reported strange phenomena in the area, particularly affecting navigation equipment, since the days of Christopher Columbus.  But many authors have embellished alleged occurrences because it makes for a good story. Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble- who doesn’t love a good enigma? (Reported events are extremely interesting to read about if you have the time.) It has since been revealed that the number of incidents that occurred in the Bermuda Triangle are no greater than anywhere else in the Atlantic Ocean, and no mysterious disappearances have been reported since the late 1960s. In light of this news, remember the Bermuda Triangle is located near some ideal vacation destinations- a great place to plan your escape. Disappear from your everyday with this fragrance.

What Does Bermuda Triangle Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Bergamot FragranceBergamot Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Bergamot fragrance comes from the bergamot orange. Strange name seeing as it’s not actually orange- more of a yellow-ish green but it is the size of an orange. Hmm. Well, it is a citrus fruit. its Latin name is Citrus bergamia. ‘Bergamot’ comes from the Italian bergamotta or ‘prince of pears.’ …but it isn’t a pear, either. Most of the world’s bergamot oranges are grown in southern Italy, the rest in southern France. It is also grown in southern France and southern Turkey.  The flesh of this fruit is not edible- not that you would ever eat fragrance or essential oils, anyway. Oil made from pressing the peel is used for a variety of flavorings, most famously, Earl Grey Tea and Turkish Delight. It is often made into marmalade in Italy. Bergamot oil is even used in smokeless tobacco products as flavoring. It takes about 100 bergamot oranges to make 3 oz of bergamot oil. For this reason, pure bergamot oil is highly coveted. Bergamot oil has been an ingredient in fragrance since as early as 1714.

Bamboo and White Grapefruit FragranceBamboo and White Grapefruit Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Bamboo is a grass-like plant with many subspecies. The varieties grown in the United States reach heights between 15 and 39 feet. Some of the largest timber bamboo can grow to be about 100 feet tall. Timber bamboo? That’s right- bamboo is used in building and can hold more weight than wood, brick, or concrete. It also rivals the strength of steel. Isn’t that the stuff pandas eat? They do! Bamboo comprises most of a panda’s diet- but they focus their attentions on the soft shoots, stems and leaves. Speaking of diets, grapefruits are super healthy and can even help your body metabolize fat. This fruit is actually a hybrid of the sweet orange and the pomelo. Like most citrus fruits, the grapefruit contains lots of Vitamin C and has a sweet to bitter taste- depending on the variety. They’re high in fiber and possess many other health benefits. Both grapefruit plants and bamboo are evergreens. When we hear this, we may tend to think Christmas trees, but I think it’s a good indication that this scent is always fresh!

What Does Bamboo and White Grapefruit Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

One of the most amazing fragrances we have ever smelled!  This fresh, complex fragrance begins with top notes of White Grapefruit, Petitgrain, and Tangerine; leading to middle notes of Mandarin, Tangerine, and Mimosa Petals; and balanced with base notes of Rainforest Bamboo, Juniper Berries, and Musk.

Aspen, Colorado is the ideal location for a destination vacation — for your nose! (Probably the rest of you, too, but it’s about a five hour flight from Cleveland, Ohio to Aspen, so I’m gonna stay put and just smell the scent.) A beautiful town located in the Rocky Mountains, Aspen is a popular ski resort, and it seems that the only times it doesn’t snow there are the summer months July and August. It’s even been home to the Winter X Games since 2002 (extreme sports – ESPN in Aspen). Aspen is ideal for winter sports because there’s so much snow! This scent will evoke the feeling of standing on a snowy mountain top, overlooking the beautiful Colorado landscape, without having to bundle up!

They also scent rooms in simpler ways (sans wax). The maximum recommended usage percentage for this crisp accord in incense & potpourri is 50%. This fragrance comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and would make a nice filler for any reed diffuser kit.

You can clean with it, too! The maximum recommended usage percentage in cleaning products is 5%.

Customers use this scent to create beautiful bath and body products. Aspen Winter performed well in bath and body products. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this full-bodied fragrance in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 5%. Our cold process soap testing results found that Aspen Winter has perfect pour: no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. The scent stays nice and strong after cure. It does, however, discolor soap to a dark chocolate color. This is likely due to the 12% vanillin content of the fragrance. High vanillin content increases the likelihood of discoloration in bath and body products. One way to combat discoloration is to try Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, but you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Otherwise, our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use blue soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never color your bath and body products with candle dye; don’t do it!

As for the shape of your soap, you’re welcome to make it in any shape you like- but how cute would little Aspen-Winter-scented snowflake soaps be? We’ve got a medium-sized snowflake soap mold perfect for melt-and-pour soap, and we also have a mini-snowflake mold for mini-snowflake soaps (or even mini-snowflake candle tarts)!

Customers also use this scent in body applications outside of the bath. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this spicy scent in lotions and perfumes is 5%. This fragrance performed perfectly in perfumes.
